A birthday party


Yesterday was Pepper’s 1st birthday. We were all invited. My elder daughter dog-sat her a few times, so she was going anyway. The younger daughter and me we accompanied her to the party.

Pepper had a little party frock, all in pink. She tripped over the dress a few times but generally survived.

With Samba, Bobo, Mr. Bob, Jackson, Suhana and her own two siblings Elsie and Max, there were nine dogs.

Two pair of human twins, one 18 month old girls and the other 7 year old boys made up the children invited to the party.

My own two girls, were the other children but categorized as adults per their age.

Cyn with Jackson and Mr. Bob’s owner; Samba, Suhana and Bobo were the very active people and dogs around.

There were no dog fights . Only one human ate a dog treat, which she declared incredibly tasty and lived to tell the tale. Cat, the hostess thought she had bitten off more than she could chew when she saw her beautiful, well maintained house being reduced to shambles in a matter of minutes. Kids, dogs, human kids, all ran amuck.

A good time was had by all. It was a great day and we all needed it. Being all dog lovers, all of us were our natural selves, there was no artificiality and people who hadn’t met before bonded over dogs and the snacks.

It takes animals to bring out the better side of humans. Thank you, Pepper; wish you a very happy year ahead.

      1. I have few pics, so far, of my cats & Mage doesn’t like her sibs, or her mom (not that I can blame her about her mom, Spectre warns her kids back when she gets too close to them). I do see Mage occasionally, but I’m afraid she doesn’t like me very much either, perhaps I look too much like mom (like I’m trying to trick her or something, lol) & smell too much like my cats

      2. Great to know how cats think. I have one cat at home too- Sunshine. It is good to know how he might be viewing me- he never came near me for a few hours after I returned from Pepper’s party.

    1. Dear Cobs,
      Every white dog at the party was in love with Mr. Bob.
      Bob had a sad story the last time I saw him about two months back. His mother( human) had left him and his father and taken three of the other dogs with her, when she left home. The father and mother have since separated. Poor Mr. Bob had the sad expression on his face that said, where are my friends ? Why did Mom leave just me ?
      But yesterday was his day. Three of the white dogs fell in love with his charms( they were all boy dogs) and followed him around all the time.
      Will convey your greetings to Pepper.
      Thank you.

    1. April,
      Thank you for your wishes. So happy to have connected again. Hope all is going well. I was rather busy with my daughters, mother’s illnesses and a lot of other things to read your blog. I will do my best from now.

    1. Faye,
      To tell you the truth, I was rather embarrassed by her hysterics and her confession. I didn’t mind her having eaten the dog snack but didn’t relish the attention from everyone after they knew what happened.
